MCLEAN, VA—Northern New Jersey’s newest Hilton Hotels & Resorts property, the 427-key Hilton Meadowlands, is now open following the completion of the first phase of a multimillion-dollar renovation.
Formerly a Sheraton, Hilton Meadowlands is operated by PM Hospitality Strategies (PMHS).
The first phase of the renovation included half of the guestrooms, the lobby and corridors. The remaining rooms and meeting space are scheduled to be refreshed next year.
With 30,000 sq. ft. of meeting and event space, Hilton Meadowlands can accommodate up to 1,000 guests attending meetings or social events in its 11,500-sq.-ft. Diamond Court Ballroom and up to 500 people in the 5,200-sq.-ft. Derby Ballroom. Smaller groups can access up to 15 meeting rooms. The meeting facilities also offer a 4,100-sq.-ft. conference center.
Additional amenities include Chairman's Grill, offering American cuisine; The Lounge, featuring light fare; a Starbucks Café; an indoor swimming pool; sauna and whirlpool; fitness room; and business center.
The hotel's recently completed solar carport has a capacity to produce 1.1 megawatts of clean energy annually, providing approximately 20% of the property's energy. Other programs include composting of organic waste, meeting space recycling, food donations, elimination of Styrofoam and energy-efficient digital signing. The hotel participates in Clean the World, a non-profit, global health program that hygienically recycles and donates more than 3.2 million bars of soaps and 1.7 million bottles of shampoos, conditioners and lotions to children around the world.
Located across the street from the Meadowlands Complex, the hotel is minutes from MetLife Stadium, four miles from New York City and 15 minutes from Newark Liberty International Airport.

When you hear all the lodging industry projections for the months and years to come, much of the robust growth is forecast to be the result of the expected influx of travelers from China. In what could only be seen as good news for the industry, that expectation moved a little closer to reality when President Obama signed a visa waiver extension for Chinese travelers earlier this month.
